What is the difference between the 28-Day Sofa to Sensational Challenge and the fitness cycles offered on fullforlife.com?
Both include FfL workouts. The 28-Day Sofa to Sensational Challenge is a 28-day Barre-inspired challenge with full-length videos. The fitness cycle programs offer high intensity circuit training (quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods) with written and full-length videos.
Why incorporate high intensity interval training?
HIIT, or high intensity interval training, is a technique where you give 100% effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods.This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time than regular aerobic and steady-state workouts, so you maximize results.
“Research also shows that those who do HITT training experience more enjoyment in exercise over time, compared with those who do moderate continuous activity.” -HEALTH MAGAZINE
What equipment is needed?
None! The workouts use bodyweight exercises, so no equipment is required. To add intensity and continue to build strength and muscle, we welcome you to incorporate bands and/or a set of heavy and light free weights into the workouts.
How to warm up and cool down after a workout
Properly warming up and cooling down are essential parts of any workout that often get skipped. A guided warm-up and cool-down video is included in each program for you to follow along.
What should I do on my rest days?
It’s important to give your body time to repair the muscles you’ve been working so hard to tone. On rest days, we encourage you to incorporate 3-5 minutes of gentle fitness into your day. You can go on a walk, hold a plank or do some stretching!

I struggle with accountability; how can I stick to making better choices?
The best way to make healthy choices is by intentionally taking steps (big or small) toward feeling your best, both inside and out. However, this can sometimes feel overwhelming. Maybe it’s because you’re overloaded at work and home, or because you just don’t have clear direction of where to focus your efforts.
